I made this chart after reading an article that informed me that sitting more than six hours a day was effectively killing me. I immediately flipped out and started eating lunch standing up (which I still do pretty frequently). However, that only brings my daily sit time down to about 23 hours.
Anyway, learning this fact made me wonder what other things were lowering my lifespan.
Explanations and sources for each fact can be found here: http://bit.ly/IAPhpl
…and yes, you read that right…NOT drinking alcohol (in moderation) supposedly reduces lifespan.

The Political One Percent of the One Percent

In the 2010 election cycle, 26,783 individuals (or one in ten thousand  Americans) each contributed more than $10,000 to federal political campaigns.  Combined, these donors spent $774 million. That’s 24.3% of the total  from individuals to politicians, parties, PACs, and independent  expenditure groups. Together, they would fill only two-thirds of the  41,222 seats at Nationals Park the baseball field two miles from the  U.S. Capitol. When it comes to politics, they are The One Percent of the One Percent.

Occupy the universities?
With the costs of a college education astonishingly high and youth job prospects incredibly dim in this economy, is going to college worth it anymore?
“The students in Zuccotti Park are right to focus on the injustices of  student debt: Many of them are indentured to the very banks that  destroyed the economy and along with it the jobs students need to pay  their loans back. The banks were bailed out for their trouble, while  students are left with debt that, thanks to financial industry lobbying,  can’t be discharged in bankruptcy. Outstanding student loans in the  United States are projected to reach $1 trillion this year, a larger sum  than credit card debt.”

In 1937, mathematician Lothar Collatz proposed that given the following algorithm, you will always end at the number 1:
Take any natural number, n.
If n is even, divide it by 2.
Otherwise, n is odd. Multiply it by 3 and add 1.
Repeat indefinitely.
Developer Jason Davies puts it into reverse and shows all the numbers that fall within an orbit length of 18 or less. Press play, and watch the graph grow.
